The village existed before the Norman Conquest and was the property of the Dean and Chapter of York Minster. Neighbouring Acomb Grange was the residence of the masters of the great medieval hospital of St Leonard. There are two 15th century timber-framed houses here, and the village was made a Conservation Area in 1975. Though it now largely appears a suburb of York, the historic part of the village along Front Street and the Green retain their village character. It is also an Area of Archaeological Importance .
